just went on wet and wilds website tried to buy a gel linear and a brow pencil it was so resnonabily priced but the shipping was 30-70 dollars , why so much? :o (shipping to Canada btw) i've never seen shipping so expensive!
Yeah - You feel happy with your budget and then all of a sudden the shipping costs more than the purchase - Buying things is complicated these days with add ons or small print - You have to do what you did and research beforehand to get an idea of what real total cost will be.
That's insane... I don't know what the gel liner stuff is but if it's aerosol or something like that it could be that it can't fly and has to travel by ground. Still not sure how that could cost 30+ dollars though.
Are the products available on Amazon or other online retailers where you might not have to pay through the nose for shipping?
Shipping costs will cover the shipping by the carrier and may also include insurance and if international there can be other costs, also. But usually it does not add up to much. However, the "and handling" part can add a lot. There is a little to cover things like the materials to box it up and keep it safe inside the box, but also the company will add even more just to make more of a profit.
